New FPS game in rotation

2010-06-18

I have jumped back into the MSC Clan and gotten into Battlefield :: Bad Company II. It was pretty buggy and lame the first 30 days of its release but I waited for the first few patches before buying it off Steam. Its a pretty decent game and fun with the Clan guys but these FPS games keep resetting the bar. Its like there is no code-reuse from engine to engine…even basic filter features on the server browser don’t show up and the interface for the server list is barely functional.

There really needs to be an open source online server engine with hooks into the various chat programs such as Ventrilo and Team Speak. Its just sad to see all the wasted effort reinventing the wheel every time a new FPS comes out.

Just saw the news about the WordPress 3.0 release and figured I would give it a spin on my old blog which they haven’t deleted even though its been over a year since I bothered to post anything.

A cool looking update for one of my favorite games.

He is a puzzle, wrapped in an enigma, shrouded in riddles, lovingly sprinkled with intrigue, express mailed to Mystery, Alaska, and LOOK OUT BEHIND YOU! but it is too late. You’re dead. For he is the Spy—globetrotting rogue, lady killer (metaphorically) and mankiller (for real).

Audit and then End the Federal Reserve

This woman is the “Federal Reserve Inspector General” and she can’t even make a coherent response to a simple question in 5 minutes. This is another blaring reason that Ron Paul’s HR-1207 really needs to pass.
